Fleet-focused MINI Clubman arrives in the UK

  • New diesel engine places Clubman even closer to rivals
  • CO2 emissions as low as 99g/km
  • Deliveries start from April 2016

Less than six months since the new MINI Clubman went on sale, the range has been extended to include a new low-tax diesel model ideal for company car drivers.

Built at the MINI plant in Oxford, the new Clubman One D is available to order now with first deliveries starting from April 2016.

Under the bonnet is a three-cylinder TwinPower Turbo 1.5-litre diesel engine that offers 114bhp and 270Nm of torque, capable of accelerating the car from 0-62mph in 10.4 seconds.

A six-speed manual is standard on the One D Clubman, however company car drivers can also opt for a six-speed Steptronic auto transmission for around £1,500 more.

Headline figures impress with CO2 emissions as low as 99g/km and a combined fuel economy of 74.3mpg if equipped with the manual gearbox. With P11D prices for the manual starting at £21,320, the Clubman One D will slot into a 19 percent BIK tax band for the 2016/17 tax year and cost from £67 a month for a 20 percent tax payer.   

Opt for the automatic gearbox and running costs suffer just a little, with a combined fuel economy of 72.4mpg and CO2 emissions up to 104g/km meaning a 20 percent tax band for the 2016/17 tax year and a BIK bill of £76 a month for a 20 percent tax payer.

Significantly bigger than the outgoing model with 100 litres more boot space on offer, the new Clubman has become a practical family car for user choosers, while retaining much of its character including those famous barn doors at the rear.

Now with lower CO2 emissions, the Clubman is even better placed to challenge its well-established rivals including the Volkswagen Golf, Audi A3 Sportback and BMW 1 Series stablemate.

Joining Cooper, Cooper D and Cooper S models in the range, the new One D offers a whole host of standard kit ideal for company car drivers including sat-nav, cruise control, 16-inch alloys, automatic lights and wipers, DAB radio and the “Excitement Package”, which, among other things, projects a MINI logo from the driver’s side door mirror when the doors are opened and closed.
